Its canonicity is in question but was once considered canon.
A Scissorhand is an incredibly dangerous close combat weapon used by Dark Eldar Haemonculi. It is a glove with long monomolecular blades attached to the fingertips like claws. The glove has a series of vein-like tubes that run along each finger, slowly reapplying an incredibly virulent poison to the blades. Victims who receive even the slightest of scratches by these blades become wracked with pain so incredible that it frequently causes the target to pass out or even die.
